I ran across this website by and for moms. What caught my eye was the Mothers Day proclimation as spoken by Julia Ward Howe. This is what Mombo has to say:

The roots of Mother’s Day come from Julia Ward Howe [who gave] a Mother’s Day proclamation for peace in a church in 1870. It was a cry for mothers to stand up and say, We will no longer send our sons and husbands to be killed, and we will stand with mothers across the world against war. It still gives me a chill. It’s a very political holiday.
